The most desirable living room designs are usually the ones that exude a natural and casual confidence. They are simple designs effortlessly put together with few furniture and perfectly placed accents. We included some examples of cohesive living rooms anyone can recreate with a little editing and a small budget.
This living room is perfectly balanced with multiple accent pillows all in different sizes and shapes, yet it maintains balance with a basic square glass coffee table. The addition of plants gives the space a natural and relaxed environment. The wall art share the same tones as the sofa and is complemented with a flat weave beautiful rug.
We love color however, in this living room having white walls and cream tones are a perfect balance to the natural wood floor. A Throw always adds warmth to a space and provides a casual look. Two very simple geometric pictures it’s the perfect addition to contrast the wall color. The curtains soften the space and frame the window perfectly. A few accent pillows on the floor and a side tote create a signature stamp of minimalistic living.
Art does not have to be perfectly centered with a sofa. As this picture showcases the art makes an eye-catching statement with a variety of sizes and photography. The rustic ladder and the utilitarian swing arm wall lamp add a layer of style to this composition. The space is full of texture with the wicker chair, smooth wood coffee table and metal weave basket. This space holds different accent pieces yet giving a cohesive effortless look.
Greenery inside and out is the best feature on this living room. The turquoise, blues, and greens in the space lift up and complement the natural finishes of its architecture. The bright yellow open credenza adds a pop of color and in combination with the checkered rug, although a classic finish, creates a contemporary feel in a mid-century inspired space.
Classic meets Scandinavian
This space screams Scandinavian design at first glance, nonetheless the parquet wood flooring and hallway furniture are classic timeless pieces. Balancing old and new is easily accomplished by using the classic pieces as focal points. Gray tones in curtains, carpet and seating furniture add depth and contrast while providing a effortless feeling into the space. This living room has little accent pieces and by having them placed strategically around the long living room they make the space feel comfortable and open. Anyone can achieve a beautiful living room with a small budget by recreating any of these designs and editing your existing decor. Most times spaces don't look cohesive not because you are lacking decor or furniture bur rather you need to edit your space and find pieces in similar tones while keeping some pops of color as accents.
